NEGRO EXODUS 

FROM THE SOUTH 

CAUSES CRISIS 



«v. 



■At 



log of West I'uim and Clay County 
citizens, the labor situation, resulting 
from the departure, uf tbotjaunds of 
Negroes for thS North, was discussed. 
A 'resolution was passed providing fuj 
the appointment of a committee ol 
twenty to inform each 'labor agent ir 
the county ^J hat his business is ruin 
oils to the- county und also 'request 
him- to . desist from recruiting Negro 
labor fur other parts or the couu 

The lubor situation in many psrrs of 
Miasissippi is approaching a crisis. I 
fact, the whole of the South is belli 
arouse! by the dully exudus of labo 
era, and action, similar to that take 
at'the West Point meeting, isbein 
urged in i. ili.-r places.- Munic of the 
more conservative empluyers advise 
leas drastic action. 

It is pointed out that the labor 
agents have the protection of tbo law 
and that complications, will inevitably 
result if the citizens proceed with the 
single idea that the only way in which 
tboy.can hold their labor la by liter 
ally ejecting the agents from their diS' 
tricta. Making conditions in tboSouth 
mofb attractive tu the Negro laborer 
will, it" ia said, be a more peaceful 
means of forcing the taho'r agent to 
close his doora. *■

What Is Treason? 



IT- an ordinary eittxea should try 
to prevent the Enlistment of any Amer- 
ican i-itir.cri ixi the. army or navy at 
this time lie could and would be se- 
verely punished for it. We believe 
that such interference •roold be' called 
treason. 

Certain southern CongreastneB have 
openly opposed and are openly oppus- 
:rjg the enlistment of Colored Ameri- 
cana, or their inclusion itr* any plan 
uf universal military service.. If such 
aot treason, what . ia itf

UNCONSCIOUS SEGREGATION. 

It) an editorial, our contemporary, The Fraternal Clarion, in 
its last issue, criticised that majority of the Negro population that 
is intolerant of race ostracisms. 

In this thousand word opinion occur these expressions: "When- 
ever we desire fo segregate ourselves for any reason, we can bring 
to bear the most eloquent and logical arguments in support of our 
actions on a plea of race pride and race consciousness. But when 
the proposition tosegregate us comes from outside the race, we 
.condemn it as 'jim-crowism'." 

We ure glad the Clarion came so c)arion-!ike with these state- 
ment?: first, because it shows how calloused are its sensibilities; 
secondly: because itS;resents possible opportunity for enlightment. 
Every word oF the quoted sentences are true. Aggregation or seg- 
regation, which ever you choose to name it, is respectively tolerable 
or intolerable to self-respecting, manly men just to the extent that 
it is voluntary or by command. Two men leave & building; one 
goes because he wants to go; the other leaves because he is ordered 
out. The Clarion sees no differences in the two instances, be- 
cause both men go out. We lie down-on the grass from a desire to 
recline: the Clarion is knocked down, but thinks it has no more 
cause for affront than vie, because we are both- equally down. 

■ Such »' spirit as this quotation reveals is the spirit of .innate 
slavery. It is the spirit that will swallow shame and grin for a 
drink to wash it down, it is a. spirit that iiivit.es and encourages 
he degradation of our race.' It inspires the Vardamans, Tillmans 
and Cole, Bleases^to invent fresh debasements and It discourages 
and sickens those who would see us free and respected. 

Are we harsh? Jlesus was harsh when he scourged the money- 
changers from the Temple. There are offenses that compel harsh- 
ness. Here is unspeakable servility spread before the eyes of the 
youth of our race as an instruction; and nothing that is necessary 
to discredit it can be too severe. 

In this - editorial, the sole defect of our magnificent public 
school system that the late Edward Long, as superintendent of 
schools, said he deeply deplored— separation of the races -is exulted 
oyer. It lauds associations of the, name of Jesus Christ with the 
curse "of the American color-line. It cries loudly for a "colored 
hospital" and "colored parks." It insists- on making' the colored 
man a cheerful civic parasite. It extols proscription of -self . It is 
intolerable, ' ■ " ' - . ,T ' ' / 

■ We are opposed to segregation of any kind based on color/ It 
is bad ip its mildest form. It is undemocratic and un American in 
principle." St, Louis has not fully recovered from its evil effects of 
a little more than a year ago. Law is one thing and sentiment is 
another. . If we do not profit by past experience, we should have 
our sensibilities quickened. Segregation takes on -ita most-danger- 
ous form when .encouched into law. the Negro is in a most pitable 
condition when he asks for it and does not know it. " ■ ;*-' 

There is at present, a "colored ward,' in- the City Hospital. 
This is a condition which we did not ask for. If it must be, why 
not appoint Negro doctors and nurses to look after its patients?

COLLEGE MEN DESIRED. 

Our college graduates are receiving letters from the War De- 
partment urging them US present themselves forexamination for 
commission in the Officera* Reserve Corps. From these en- 
c]osures,V reads the letter, it will be apparent that the Government 

is relying largely upon the graduate hotly of. 'the educational insti- 
tutions of the country to furnish men possessing the basic qualifi- 
cations for the "First Ten Thousand'" to officer the first half mil- 
lion troops to be called to the colors." We are fortunate, in this 
crisis, to have.ir.eri of our race competent and willing to answer the 
call of their country. f*,_ :

•iO«*T DELIVUT 



Origin of the Vyifading Ring 
Of Today Has Been Traced 
Back to Days of Old Egypt 

How many brides, aa they trenrn- 
iously present "a coy finger for the 
clasp of the magic circlet, even suspect 
that the welcome symbol of hymeneal 
bliss come* down -to them from' Old 
Egypt? In the land of the sphinx 
and- the pyramids was the cradle of 
emancipated' womanhood, where mater- 
fatnlllas ruled her willing household 
with despotic sway— a fair and benev- 
olent despotism bnt none the leas ty- 
rannical; borrowing her smng author- 
ity, from .the mothergoddeas Hus, th* 
Indomitable and supreme. 

In ancient time* the Influence of 
the Egyptian *Ve extended, far be- 
yond the domain of the family duel- 
ling, for she was - mistress ■ of the 
storerooms, the granaries, and all the 
provisions: "Mistress ot the Seals," 
""Mistress of the Linens," "Mistress of 
the Khetetba." the' sealed rooms. Alt 
the doors, boxes and Jars of the house- 
'bold were elaborately sealed and un- 
der her sole supervision. This. It Is 
isald, accounts for the 'great number of 
jsc-arab ' Bands found by the- aide of fe- 
male* In mummy caaea. . - 
. In this capacity as supreme arbi- 
ter of the household and Its appur- 
tenance*, on the wedding day .the 
Egyptian woman's lord, bat not her 
master, presented .'her with a little 
string of seals which she wore like 
a bunch Of keys. At first the Jewels 
"were suspended from r. string hung 
sbout her neck. Then ' she wore them 
oh !*- cord or string tied around her 
"wrist, and Inter, for greater security, 
they, were attached to the finger by a 
string or a wire. This wire Is said 
to be the direct forbear of the signet 
ring and of the wedding ring.. 

With the advent of lock* "these, seal* 
gave way to keys, and the husband 
ceremoniously presented bis mistress 
with the key* of the household or ae- 
tata- on -a, ring.' Tlie.se beaming too 
cumbersome or. uncomfortable, a plain 
metal band -.was given with, the keya, 

Say* Ocerol "TAe key was.-sjrea 
to the bride on' entering her bone, to 
signify that abe was appointed- mis- 
tress — materia mi I! as — of the house—* 

in net, to be nsed by -her to lock op

w*a taken away."

(Lord Jeans Christ It Is said, "I write 
aa. little .children, because your 
'sins are (orgt^en yon for bla name 
f ialte" (2:12). , 

Perhaps someone reading these 
words baa never had bis sins forgiven. 
Be Is carrying the burden of his gal It 
end knows nothing of the joy and 
peace In believing In the Lord Jean* 
Christ To such a one comes the 
words of Paul, "Be It known unto you 
therefore, men and brethren, that 
through this man Is preached, unto yon 
the forgiveness- of sins: And by him 
nil that believe are Justified from all 
things, from which ye could not be 
jostlSM by the, law of Moses" (Arte. 
13:28-20). It. Is possible, you see from 
this, for an unbeliever to believe In 
the Lord Jems Christ end have at 
once the forgiveness of sin Bhd to 
know that his sins ere forgiven him. 
H The Way of Cleansing. 

Then nolle* next that this epistle 
tells us of (he provision made for the 
believer's cleansing from the defile- 
ment of sin. This Is set before na In 
the first chapter, seventh verse, where 
we rend: The blood ofjeeos Christ; 
his Son, deanaeth na from all sin." 
The word "cleanaeth" make* U clear 
that there. Is a continual protM* ever 
going on 10 the' Believer's life by 
which he-Is made dean from sin. In 
.two ways God has provided forlhe be- 
liever's cleansing: first, through the 
blood of Jeans Christ; and. secondly, 
through hla Word. Wc-ha»e the first 
' 'method mentioned above; the stoood, 
when Jesns said to his disciples. "Now 
are ye dean. through the word whfth 1 
have spoken nnto you,"'. and In Ephe- 
alans Sve. where we read of the "n-ssh- 
- lng of the. water hj tlie word. The 
ever-present cleansing, which W the 
believer's through the blood of Christ, 
hi' perpetual In Its affect' and .assure* 
him that before God; in -'Christ he is 
cleansed. The elentnrtng by the Word 

baa to do with his dally walk, 1 in 

measure as the believer permits the 
Holy Spirit to apply the Word to bis 
life It cleanses a"nd keeps him from 
the defilement est sin. - 

Complete Deliverers*. 
Then we come to the third fact, 
which tells a* how we may be deliv- 
ered from the, power of sin. -These 
things write I unto yon that ye m(iy 
not'ain" (Revised Verslot»2:l). When 
we. face thla truth we face one of the 
most solemn, truths In the Word of 
God. We may have been afraid of It 
because we have known eertnln teach- 
ing that has led Into grave error, and 
as a result we draw back when any- 
one talks about the possibility n'f the, 
believer not slnntnit. bnt what Is (fee 
slimltlrnnce of this "expression "may. 
not sin." If It does not mean that 
there Is for the believer deliverance in 
(his life from the power of sin. 
H If very evident from the Context 
■ that tne'aposHe Is ..not' teaching the 
erndtfntlon of sin When he say* "tuny 
nut sin," for he says, "If w.e. say we 
have no sin (that Is the root" or prin- 
ciple of sin) we deceive oomelveR and 
the truth Is apt In us." But In the 
face of this fact that sin is' in us, the 
. apostle says Athene things wrHe I on- 
w to you that ye may not stlfc* By 
this he means the practice of sin. and 
so he thus sets before us. the possi- 
bility i.f the believer belijg. delivered 
from, the practice of sin. Well tuny we 
ask. "HuwT" The guwet Is, "through 
Christ," - " *' *■ 

Our Advocate. 
' Bnt what If we should sin. Is there 
any provision for oat Tea. My* th^ 
apostle, "If any, man aln we have an 
. Advocate with the Father. Jesus Christ 
.the righteous" ■ (8:1). Thla blessed 
provision Is made not that we may sfn.

LESSON FOR MAY 13 

JESUS THE TRUE VINE. 

LESSON TEXT— John 16:1-11 ■ 
OOi.DKN TEXT-1 am ihe viae, ye »re 
the braneb*e.~John 1S:E. 

This lesson chronologically, follow* 
that of lost Sunday. Christ had risen 
with, bis disciples from the supper ta- 
ble (-14 SI), and. the .remainder of hla 
dlscourarmay have occurred In an up- 
per room, pr in the courtyard of- the 
bouse before they left the city, or on 
the way to the garden of Getheemane, 
I.- THE ABIDING LIFE <w. 1.4*. 
Under the figure of the vine Jesus 
tenches spiritual truth by natural 
analogy. The vine Is composed of 
roots, stem, branches, tendrils, and 
fruit. There la no separate life: the 
branches are one with the vine. Christ 
la the- head of that body which is the 
church to Its least member. " The life 
lived by the Christian Is Christ's life 
hamanlxed, the purpose of which la 
fruit bearing. Discipline la In order 
to fmltfulness. "He ^My Father, the 
vlne-drcsser) cuts away any branch on 
me which Is, not bearing fruit, and 
clonus every branch which- doe* benr 
fruit, to mnke It bear richer froJf > 
(Molrnt'a translation). Paul' tells us 
that "no chastening for the present 
seemeth to be Joyous but grievous: 
nevertheless, afterward It yleldcth the 
peaceable frnlt of righteousness unto 
them which are. exercised thereby-". 
The Word 1- the cleansing agent (IT: 
17). Verse four suggests a double 
nbLdUiBTrwe In him, and he In us — 
the brunch depending upon the vine 
for life, nnd the vine depending upon 
the branch for fruit. Jesus hail Just 
been tuUclne about his approaching 
death, and -Ms disciples were full of 
anxiety. He tells- them .not to be 
bled, and by- this 
that, though he 

wonld still be Joined lo them. 
though they- had been made clean, 
they are taught that the only, way to. 
keep denn Is by "abiding," which 1* 
to he continued through the eternal 
spirit after his decease and ascent to 
the Father. "It Is given to us to hold 
fellowship with both the rout that 
twines itself about the cross and the 
tendrils which stretch upward to 
glory.'i— A. J. Gordon. 'So long as we 
think of ourselves, and not of Christ 
as the source <S{ power, we shall mis* 
the secret of fmltfulness. 
' II. The Fruitful Life W*?\IHn. 
If we abide In him we will bring forth 
much fruit Note the progression^ 
"frnlt" "more fruit." "much fruit." If 
the branch does not bear fruit It Is fit 
only for fue| (Isa. 2T:ilj, "If ye abide 
in me, and my words abide In'you. ye 
■hall aak what ye will, and It shall be 
done unto you" (v, 7). -Our first fruit 
Is Mglorlfy'.nSa (v. 8). The vine does 
ume the fruit which it pro- 
duces, though It does exist for It* pro- 
duction, thu* glorifying God through 
Its frult-bearlng function. The Bible 
uses many fieures to illustrate 'the In- 
timate relationship .between root and 
fruit. -"Without me." emphasises 
Christ/"** enn do nothing." The 
"word/ of verse three Is equivalent to 
the »yo,rd "I" of vcrse'four. "Now ye 
are clean through -the word which I 
have spoken unto you" (*. 3). Our 
fruit bearing is for God's, mory be- 
cause It Is an expression «f his grace 
and power.- and It Is made possible 
through our Identification* with his 
dear sen. Our frultfulncss attests our 
Chrlstlnn character. We" brive n 
attained perfection In our conduct, but 
we are maklna progress. 'Progressive'
